Freedom of Choice 1992

"Freedom of Choice is what you got, Freedom from Choice is what you want". Amb aquesta estrofa els Devo van clavar un hit New-Wave en tota regla. Any 1980. Divertits i desconcertants, Devo era una de les mil variants que oferia la constel·lació after punk-new wave i especialment en l'apartat techno pop que inundaven aquella dècada sonora. Ha passat molt temps. 


 
Una dècada després, aprofitant el caliu de les noves escenes undergrounds que traspassaven la línia de flotació terrestre, una colla d'artistes agrupats en els dominis del grunge (maleïda etiqueta), el noise rock i l'art rock més iconoclasta, es van conjurar en un exercici de revitalització i d'homenatge als grans de la New Wave. 


Aprofitant l'efecte "Choice of Freedom", la gent de Yo La Tengo, Sonic Youth, Mudhoney, Erectus Monotone, Redd Kross, Superchunk, White Flag o Finger, entre molts més, es van dedicar a perpetrar versions dels clàssics de la nova onada. Sense manies, el doble vinil Freedom of Choice (a les fotografies apareix la coberta damunt l'estora del meu estudi) de 1992 és un dels tresors del "versionisme" intergeneracional i, amb el pas del temps, ja és matèria de culte i objecte d'observació retrospectiva. Els esmentats grups van anar de cara a barraca interpel·lant els originals d'Elvis Costello, Plastic Bertrand, Paul Collins Beat, Go-Go's, Iggy Pop, The Pretenders, Soft Cell, Flock of a Seagulls, Blondie, Kate Bush, Adam & the Ants, Human League, B-52's i, lògicament, els Devo. Una festa! 


Aquest cap de setmana ha anat d'una banda a l'altra de l'estereofònic. Quatre cares de vinil ardent, portada sensacional, carpeta doble i, el més important, una constatació de que el món si és Pop funciona millor (malgrat l'Inside Job financer dels fastigosos de Wall Street, la "deudocràcia" dels estats sotmesos al capital i els efectes d'una barbàrie capitalista absolutament desbocada). Som-hi! "Cliqueu" imatges i videos...salvem el planeta! Freedom of Choice 1992-2011. Pensant en els 80.

uau! "rizando el rizo", homenatge als vuitanta fet per els dels noranta, uau! el pop és això: tralla, melodia i celebració a destajo.

El Nen ha dit...

a mi els "grungeros" no m'han fet mai el pes però en aquest disc sincerament van fer quelcom important: POP en majuscules grosses.

Àngel 'Soulbizarre-Tati' ha dit...

Bona observació Jorko, sempre el Pop!

"El Nen", a mi el tema del grunge mai em va captivar, ni tants sols Nirvana, tinc un parell de vinils i crec que no els he punxat més de dues vegades en vint anys.

Però Sonic Youth, Pavement o Yo la Tengo són una altra història i no van entrar en els paràmetres periodistics de l'etiqueta "grunge".

Per sort...i heus aqui una bona mostra amb aquest doble vinil.
